Fritillaria raddeana

F. raddeana, a rare Central Asian native, has a growing habit similar to that of F. Crown imperialis Maxima Lutea or Rubra Maxima, but is a bit more delicate in appearance. It has a cluster of up to ten pendant, bell-shaped, pale greenish-yellow flowers under a tuft of upright shiny foliage atop a rigid, strong stem. Lance-shaped foliage adorns the lower portion of the flowering stem. It also has delicate interior beauty with hazy green-edged white nectories that appear like little eyes. Occasionally, some flowers elevate to be outward facing. You’ll need about four bulbs per square foot. Bulb size: 16/18 cm. Full to dappled sunlight. Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: April. Plant 6" to 7" deep and 8" to 10" apart. HZ: 5-8. Height: 24" to 32".

  • Information

  • Deer- and rodent-resistant Fritillaria have ivory, yellow, green, plum or two-tone pedant, bell-shaped flowers. Growing from 8" to 36" tall with a bit of a skunky scent, most of our Fritillaria were native to the western Himalayas and Asia Minor from 1575 through 1905. They prefer rich, well-draining neutral pH soil and filtered sunlight. A bit more finicky than other flower bulbs, these heirlooms don't like being out of the soil, so plant them immediately upon receipt. Bulb sizes depend upon the variety. Bloom time: April/May. Plant the large Fritillaria bulbs 6" to 7" deep and 8" to 10" apart. Plant the smaller Fritillaria bulbs 5" to 6" deep and 5" to 6" apart. Variable horticultural zones ranging from 3-8 depending on the variety.
